Title: ECAR-4310, Evaluation of the Inhalation Dose Consequences for the HALEU Environmental Assessment

Abstract

The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to expand the fuel fabrication capability at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) to produce needed quantities of High-Assay Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) fuel from down-blended EBR-II fuel processed at the Fuels Conditioning Facility (FCF) and stored at INL. The expansion of the fuel fabrication capability would include the purchase of new equipment and use of existing facilities at INL’s Materials Fuels Complex (MFC) and the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center (INTEC). The purpose of this report is to document calculation of the estimated potential inhalation dose to members of the public and workers from accidental air emissions associated with production of HALEU fuel. This document supports the Environmental Assessment for Use of DOE-Owned HALEU Stored at Idaho National Laboratory.
